I was diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer in January 2002. I have undergone 6 months of Chemotherapy. During the initial CT Scan to determine metastasis, I was informed that the cancer had not spread. After switching doctors I learned that there was an abnormal node in the lung. Follow-up in June during treatment indicated no growth. A x-ray on the 29th indicated the node has grown. My question, has anyone had colon cancer that has metastacized to the lung, without going to the liver. All documentation indicates this can happen, however, 1 doctor said it is unlikely. I'm concerned that this abnormal, growing node is not going to be taken seriously. A follow-up CT Scan is scheduled for Monday with a pulmonologist appointment for December. Any input would be greatly appreciated as I am very concerned that my lung is now involved.
